Review: Semblance

The traditional 2D platformer genre accounts for some of my favorite games ever. That being said, it's always awesome to see a game try and change the genre in new and exciting ways. Semblance does just that, in a way I'm surprised I h...

Review: Grab the Bottle

For the most part I pick games that are either striking in some way or another or just flat-out goofy looking when I decide to write about them. For reviews, I get to be even more picky as the "good" games are gobbled up by tenured staff, l...

Review: Lumines Remastered

I was a late bloomer when it came to Lumines. Unbeknownst to me I skipped over that whole step and moved on to Q Entertainment's next hit -- Meteos. So when everything came full circle years later, I was ready to embrace its greatness. Afte...

Review: Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido

Evil flexing muscle men, anime talking cats, a narrative framed around a great sushi war: I was in no way prepared to experience Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido on a purely spiritual level. The rest of it is hit or miss mechanically,...
